D+G

Received an email from a fellow reader recommending that I should check out the latest Dolce and Gabbana collection because "it seemed like something I'd be into", and boy was she right. This must mean two things... A) I am quite the predictable one and B) I have a tendency to fancy anything that has to do with undergarments (aka bodystockings, corset tops, and frilly lingerie, etc).

With witty references to 1950's operatic musical theaters, the collection consisted of bustier dresses with lampshade skirts in what looks like furniture fabric, jewel encrusted denim, tulle tutus in pretty pastels, overly ruffled dresses that seemed to exude some sort of royal quality, and last but not least, the sexiest sky scrapers I will probably ever encounter... wish there were close-ups avaialable so that I could swoon over them even more.

Those pale pink platforms are so exquisite... And I wouldn't mind some of that gold criss-cross strappage to add to my shoe collection!

I have nothing but love for this scalloped blazer. It has always, hands down, been one of my most prized possessions. Worn with Zara harem pants, random sheer tee, and vintage black satin clutch

Heavenly lighting

I am not quite sure why my heart palpitates every time I lay my eyes on something with overly ostentatious shoulder shapes. Perhaps it is not so wise to wear something like this while making photo copies at Kinko's- I got all kinds of odd stares... but I didn't really care because I felt like a prince (no not a princess) with my golden jacquard woven jacket. 

Oh and thank you Nadia from the jewelry site ice.com for these beautiful earrings, I LOVE THEM!

Golden Laces

Who would've thought that an uncomplicated flip-flop of shoelaces would create a rather blissful illusion of brand new shoes.

Scattered thoughts

I spotted these last night and couldn't quite figure out what they reminded me of... then I remembered. They kind of resemble the clear plasticized platforms that galloped down the Chanel S/S 2009 runway. And yes, I am aware that they totally give away a stripper vibe, but I'm ssmitten by all the pretty pole dancer shoes I find online.modelscopy-1.jpg picture by stylebook18
I wish I had a reason to wear fancy dresses everyday.

Really wanting some bright red lipstick. I'm dying to wear it, but I'm kind of afraid. Remind me to play with it soon.

Until next time xx
